ACN exhibition fund-raiser for Syria's suffering Christians
By Dr Caroline Hull

'Syria's Christians Search for Peace' will be showing at Liverpool's Metropolitan Cathedral from 10am–4pm on Saturday 22 July and Sunday 23 July. Entrance is free and all donations will go towards supplying emergency aid to Christian families in Aleppo, Homs and elsewhere in Syria.

10 paintings by Farid Georges, a Syriac Orthodox artist who chronicled the destruction of his beloved city of Homs, will be displayed alongside handmade table linens created by 3 Christian women who work by candlelight to support their families in Aleppo.

More than 100 drawings by Syrian children of all faiths will also be on view. These are some of over 1m drawings sent by young Syrians to the European Parliament, accompanying a petition signed by the children asking for help to achieve peace.

Photographs from ACN's extensive archive tell the stories of some of the thousands of Christians remaining in Syria, including Annie and Sarkis, a Christian couple who fell in love as they struggled to survive in Aleppo.

ACN is raising awareness about the plight of Christians in war-torn Syria and funds to support at least 25 Christian families in Syria for 1 year.

ACN is one of our 3 Parish Chosen Charities for 2017/18
